Housing for People, Not for Profit
Temporary Housing Program
Providing Apartments units for distressed familes
Mountainlands' Temporary Housing program not only provides a roof over the heads of those in need, it also refers these families to humanitarian services to provide a lasting impact on the lives of the participants. This program is the first and only of its kind in Summit County.
MCHT’s commitment to the participants is to create a bridge to fiancial independence.

"Susan" came to Mountainlands Community Housing needing a hand up, and became another Mountainlands Transitions success story. Her story is in the photos above.
Mountainlands Community Housing Trust (MCHT) is based on the belief that a safe affordable home is often a family’s first step toward economic self-sufficiency.
Celebrating 20 years in 2013, MCHT addresses the dual problems of housing affordability and availability on three fronts: acquisition and new construction of affordable housing, direct assistance in securing housing, education and advocacy to promote housing policy.
